Library catalogue/online resources access feedback needed!

We need your help and opinions!

Falmouth University and the University of Exeter are looking at a joint replacement of their respective library systems within the next couple of years. Library systems manage the catalogue & lending as well as access to online resources. We are seeking student advice and comment ahead of, and during the procurement process. As a starter, it would be helpful to know (by end of March 2013):

1. What do you use the library catalogue for?

2. Where else do you obtain information for your academic studies such as e-journal articles?

3. What problems do you encounter finding and accessing academic information – are there additional features and tools which would encourage you to make better use of the library catalogue and search systems?

Please let us know what you think and do encourage your friends to respond too. You can reply to this post, or email your responses direct to Martin Myhill (

There will be a focus group running on Tuesday 7th March in the Research Commons Seminar Room A/B (10-12pm) for anyone wishing to discuss or explore this in person. Refreshments will be available – email Martin if you want to come so we can make sure there’s enough!
